A man in the US has filed a lawsuit over a dog bite, demanding what is believed to be the largest amount of compensation ever — $2,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Anton Purisima, 62, filed the hand-scribbled lawsuit in Manhattan federal court seeking the huge amount and, in turn, likely setting a new record for a lawsuit money demand.

The Manhattan man has sued the city, NYC Transit, Au Bon Pain Store, two local hospitals, Kmart, a dog owner and anyone else he could think of — for two undecillion dollars, The New York Post reported. Purisima, who is representing himself, appears to be more of a mathematician than a lawyer.

He correctly listed the obscure number few have heard of — which is written with a “2” followed by 36 zeros — in a frivolous 22-page complaint that accuses the defendants of everything from civil rights violations to attempted murder.

The complaint states that not only was the dog in question “rabies-infected”, but a “Chinese couple” took pictures of him as he was being treated. He is suing the LaGuardia Airport for routinely overcharging his coffee and is suing Au Bon Pain, Hoboken University, the MTA, and thousands of people for various reasons.

The suit claims the pain and damages he suffered cannot be measured in money and are, therefore, “priceless”.Included in the suit as evidence is a photo of his bloodied finger.
